Synopsis- Bunnies are cute right? But what if all they do is get in trouble? Dogs are fun friends – until they eat everything in sight! When going camping, it’s always nice to have a nice, secure, bear-tested food can. But what if the bears can open the “bear-proof” can? Read about four animals that get into trouble in this book!
What I Thought- This was a collection of short, funny, and true stories. I like that the book is written for younger readers branching out – with hard-to-pronounce words having a quick guide in parentheses (sounds like Puh-REN-thuh-SEAS). There are some “Did You Know?” boxes scattered throughout the stories, and some more in-depth fact boxes as well. Ms. Newman includes pictures of the animals she wrote about. Young kids will like these stories, and the fact that they are organized into chapters. The National Geographic Kids series are colorful, organized in an interesting way and written to engage kids. They are a great way to get kids interested in non-fiction.
I give this book five out of five bookworms.
